Holsworthy is a small, friendly library that is easily accessible and can be found in a central position in the town. The library offers a range of facilities and activities and has a pro-active Friends Group and two adult reading groups, one of which is a walking group which combines a walk with books that have a link to the natural world.

For children, the library offers a monthly book group, fortnightly Bounce and Rhyme sessions, craft activities and stories during the holidays as well as the popular Book Track and Bookstart reading schemes.

Magic Garden

A relaxed, multi-sensory performance for young children. Fun for all the family but most suitable for children up to 5 years. £3:00 per child (accompanying adults and babies under 6 months free) - please book a place with staff at Holsworthy Library. The teddy bears are going to have a picnic in the Magic Garden under the shade of a magic tree, home to cuddly woodland creatures and fairies. The children become tree guardians, but a knotted handkerchief reminds Mr. Forget-me-not to cut down the tree. Oh dear! Luckily Auntie Mimi has a plan, and with the help of the animals, together they prevent a disaster to an invisible fairy world which only they can see.
